Are you covering all of your financial policy bases for billing patients? Many times patients do not understand how healthcare billing works, let alone how it works in your office. Here are the things you should have in your signed policy.
A patient calls during your child’s baseball game, violin concert, or just during family dinner. After hours visits eat into your work/life balance. Is there a way to charge a fee for seeing the patient in these circumstances?
The Illinois Chiropractic Society (ICS) has been working with the American Medical Association (AMA) in 2018 to clarify problematic language published in 2007 in the CPT® Assistant. The ICS noted that the 2007 guidance was overly inclusive in the number and types of services bundled as part of chiropractic manipulative treatment (CMT). We are happy to report that the AMA has recently revised this language to remove from the CMT narrative some of the elements that are more appropriately characterized as part of a patient re-evaluation.
